Character is destiny.
Your enthusiasm will be infectious, stimulating and attractive to others. They will love you for it. They will go for you and with you.
Norman Vincent Peale
There is a real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment.

Getting people to like you is merely the other side of liking them.
Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven't half the strength you think they have.

If you put off everything till you're sure of it, you'll never get anything done.
Promises are like crying babies in a theater, they should be carried out at once.
Resentment or grudges do no harm to the person against whom you hold these feelings but every day and every night of your life, they are eating at you.
It is of practical value to learn to like yourself. Since you must spend so much time with yourself you might as well get some satisfaction out of the relationship.

Change yourself and your work will seem different.

American freedom consists largely in talking nonsense.
Instead of loving your enemies -- treat your friends a little better.
Don't abuse your friends and expect them to consider it criticism.
It may be a cold, clammy thing to say, but those that treat friendship the same as any other selfishness seem to get the most out of it.
When a friend is in trouble, don't annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.
You may easily play a joke on a man who likes to argue -- agree with him.
The only way to amuse some people is to slip and fall on an icy pavement.
None of us can boast about the morality of our ancestors. The record does not show that Adam and Eve were ever married.
